Nokia has started rolling out a new firmware update for its budget-oriented business class handset the Nokia E5. The firmware update carries the version number 71.03.
The new firmware update brings a number of changes to the E5, including an updated web-browser and Nokia (Formerly OVI) Maps. The new browser is the same (v7.3) as the one found in Symbian Anna based handsets. The new version of Nokia Maps brings indoor positioning via Wi-Fi, and travel and recommendation services like Lonely Planet.
Other core apps like Nokia Email, and QuickOffice have also been updated. The usual performance and stability improvements, along with some bug-fixes are also present.
Nokia E5 owners can download, and install the update via OTA or by using Nokia Software Updater (NSU). Even though the E5 features UDP (User Data Preservation), users are recommended to make a backup of their data before proceeding with the firmware update.
The update is being rolled out in stages, so be patient if it does not show up on your E5 yet!
